The Music Program at Waynesburg University will be hosting their annual TUBACHRISTMAS celebration at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1. The free concert will take place in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center on the University’s campus. Doors open at 7:05 p.m.

Registration is open to euphonium and tuba players of all ages and will begin at 5:30 p.m. the day of the event. The cost is $10 to register. Rehearsal will take place beforehand at 6 p.m.

This year, TUBACHRISTMAS celebrates its 44th anniversary. The world-wide event was conceived in 1974 by Harvey Phillips as a tribute to his teacher and mentor William J. Bell. Bell was born on Christmas in 1902.

Ironically, much of the music performed at these events was composed by American composer Alec Wilder who passed away on Christmas Eve in 1980.

The first TUBACHRISTMAS concert was held in New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza Ice Rink on Dec. 22, 1974.

For more information, contact Dr. Ronda DePriest, director of the Music Program, at 724-852-3420 or rdepriest@waynesburg.edu.

Waynesburg University’s Department of Fine Arts will showcase a collection of student artwork Monday, Nov. 27, through Friday, Dec. 8. The art show will be held in the Benedum Fine Arts Gallery and opens with a reception on Nov. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m.

The exhibit and reception are free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

“The goal of this exhibit is to show the best work made within each art class [from the semester],” said Andrew Heisey, assistant professor of art and chair of the Fine Arts Department. “It is always exciting to see these students discover a hidden talent that they did not know they possessed.”

The art show will include the following types of work: drawings, functional ceramic pieces, jewelry, prints and sculptures, among other types of art.

“When students make artwork in the classroom, they are used to seeing art in the process,” said Heisey. “When their work hangs in the gallery, it changes. What looked like an ordinary drawing, sculpture or painting now appears to be a masterpiece.”

The Benedum Fine Arts Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, contact the gallery at 724-852-3247.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region.
